  • Witchcraft and Lovenskate visit Consortium

    We were really stoked on Wednesday when the Witchcraft and Lovenskate guys came into the store to say "Hi". They were due to skate Kings as part of their Evil vs Good tour. First release of the Witchcraft boards sold out at Consortium within a couple of weeks.
  • Benny Fairfax At The Battle At The Berrics 2010

    Local boy done good, Benny Fairfax, turned pro after coming runner up to Mike Mo Capaldi at the 2009 Battle At The Berrics. Last year Benny knocked out PJ Ladd in the semi finals to take his place in the final.

    So this year we've all been eagerly anticipating the re-match between Benny and PJ in the second round of 2010 Battle At The Berrics which went live yesterday. BENNY FAIRFAX vs PJ LADD

    Benny's current board of choice seams to be his 7.75" Bangers & Mash pro deck on Stereo, which is of course available at Consortium.

    Go Benny!

  • Vans Era Pro - Autumn 2010

    This week we've received some great shoes and clothing from Vans.

    Amongst our favourites are these Era Pros from the Vans Core Footwear Pro Classics Collection.

    The Era Pro takes the silhouette of the Vans Era but is made more skate tuff. Autumn 2010 is the first season that the Era Pro has been included in-line although the Era Pro has previously made an appearance 'in some form' in both Vans Syndicate and Vans Legends product capsules.

    So the Era Pro has been given a 'skate tuff update' but what are the differences? Well, Vans have upgraded the upper materials, added a reinforced Duracap toe bumper, introduced a soft terrycloth lining, as well as a removable PU sockliner.

    How can you tell the difference between an Era and an Era Pro? The tell tale signs are - subtle Duracap branding on the instep of the sidewall, Pro Classics branding on the footbed of the removable cushioned PU sockliner, and Pro branding on the reverse of Vans label tab.

    Check out our full Autumn 2010 Vans range.

  • Consortium REtales Feature In Sidewalk Mag

    If you pick up a copy of the August issue of Sidewalk Magazine you'll find a feature on Consortium. The feature gives a little of our history since opening way back in 1993.

    Our good friend Polly jumped in at the last minute and took some photos of the shop for the feature. Many were unused and we thought it would be fun to show a few more on our blog. The shop is very much a work in progress and the photos were taken on a deadline so things aren't perfect, however we think they'll give you an idea of who we are and the environment that we work in.

    Polly is very creative and has worked with a number of celebrities. Check out more of Polly's work here!

  • New Consortium Blog

    Welcome to our new blog. We hope it will give you a little insight into our world and tempt you to come and visit us on a regular basis.

    As well as talking about the general day to day goings on in Consortium world, we'll be covering new products as they launch, sharing local skateboard scene shenanigans, reporting on gigs, art and events, and generally putting out there the things that interest us.

    It's not going to be very well polished (well not to start with at least), our writing skills need to develop and our photography skills leave a lot to be desired. However we think the content's interesting enough to share and hope you do to.
